This lesson was developed for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to learn how to recognize how environmental triggers cause physiological triggers. Students should write how they feel when they are totally calm on the lines beside the one and color it in their favorite color. Students should think about what bothers them a little bit, and write what those things are beside the two box. They should color the box with the 2 a color they like but don’t love. Moving on to the 3, students should think about things within their environment that bother them a lot, where prolonged exposure could cause heightened anxiety and upset leading to a meltdown. Students should draw a line above the 3 because at this juncture they should leave that setting and report to a designated safe space to begin decompression. At a 4, students should think about how they feel right before problematic behavior(s) are illustrated. A 5 is the point of no return, so to speak. This is where students illustrate the problematic behavior which results in negative consequences. This should be used in conjunction with other visuals, supports and social stories.
